Rogge Global Partners opens German office

RELATED TOPICS​

Rogge Global Partners is extending its presence in Europe by opening an office in Frankfurt to service German, Austrian and Swiss investors, in response to growing demand for fixed income strategies.

Established in 1984, Rogge already has offices in London, New York and Singapore as well as a long established joint venture with Tokio Marine Asset Management in Tokyo. The new office will beheaded by Claudia Otremba, who has 24 years’ experience in major financial institutions and asset management.
 
With the opening of the office in Germany, institutional investors in the region will have access to Rogge’s four core areas of specialisation: Developed Markets, Investment Grade Credit, Global High Yield and Emerging Markets (Debt and Currency). In addition, Rogge has recently grown its business in Liability-Driven Investment (LDI) and has gained significant wins with a unique enhanced passive approach in Investment Grade Credit. While Rogge is well known for creating tailor-made portfolios for its clients, the 112 person firm makes a range of pooled funds, covering the major strategies, available to investors.
 
With developed market government bond yields at or near record lows, Rogge expects investor focus in Europe for 2012 to be on Global High Yield, Emerging Markets, in particular currencies and Investment Grade Credit.
 
Olaf Rogge, Senior Partner, CEO and Co-CIO of Rogge Global Partners, says: “We have had a successful year in terms of raising assets and we intend to capitalise on this success by expanding our presence into Europe. We have been active in that market for over ten years and therefore it is a logical next step. We have demonstrated that we can work with the large German-speaking institutions and we now want to deepen that commitment. German, Austrian and Swiss investors have traditionally shied away from equities, preferring the fixed income market, and we believe that there are only a handful of competitors in the German-speaking region that are offering a truly global perspective and approach.
 
Our rigorous risk management philosophy, which is built into our investment process together with the top-down macro approach, will also appeal to the German-speaking markets.”
